Fast free website traffic with EagleHitz
EagleHitz is a traffic exchange that is both a fun and fast way of collecting traffic credits. To be honest here though, it didn’t make my top 10 best free manual traffic exchanges, but wasn’t far off it either. There is an important reason for me for why that is the case and it isn’t particularly a ‘negative’, but I will explain more.
EagleHitz has a three second timer while surfing, which is great if you like to quickly surf through a bunch of sites and collect a pile of credits. But just take a moment to think on that. Wouldn’t many other surfers want to do exactly the same thing? That would mean that they are primarily there to collect credits and most likely wouldn’t be paying as much attention to the pages that are advertised as with a site with a longer timer, like six to eight seconds which is more common.
With just a three second timer, the advertised page would possibly only just have enough time to load before the surfer is ready to click away to the next page. So because of this, I feel it is OK to earn credits here because you can do it very quickly without having to spend all day in the process. But when it comes to promoting my sites on this site, I am not so sure I really will be getting a lot of ‘eyeballs’ on them.
The surfbar is based on a baseball theme and has a shortish three second timer, as mentioned before. Within this short time, you have to concentrate a little and you can be rewarded quickly for your effort.
Now normally with the other traffic exchanges I belong to, I like to surf in a group of up to ten. But Eaglehitz has a fun feature in the surf where it gets you to concentrate on watching out for four featured website networks and usually after you have viewed one of them a quiz question pops up asking you which one of the four did you last view. For this reason, I usually just surf this site by itself or sometimes may surf this and one other, alternating between them. Solving these questions is the best and quickest way to accumulate credits on this site. You get 5 free credits for every correct answer and it is usual to get 1 or 2 of these questions to answer for every 10 – 12 pages viewed.
Obviously, it will be up to you to find the balance of where you are comfortable surfing and gaining the maximum possible credits. You also win banner and text ad credits in the surf questions too.
So, it is safe to say it is a really good site for getting credits fast and it also supports pretty much all the regular features that many other traffic exchange sites do as well.
When it comes time to put all those credits youv’e earned into action and get a return on them, I tend to follow a strategy I talked about in this post HERE. Basically, what happens is that instead of putting in my link to my offer on eaglehitz, I prefer to assign the credits to a Co-op link. Say for example, I want to promote one of my favourite traffic exchanges – TrafficG. Normally I would copy my trafficG referral link and set it up . But remember before, when we covered the part where because of the short timer, maybe many people wouldn’t get much of a chance or maybe wouldn’t even notice my trafficG page in the surf. So the alternative way is to set up my TrafficG link on a Co-op site, and then take the Co-op link and set that up in Eaglehitz and use the credits to send to send traffic to the Co-op.
I have found this a much better way of getting results than advertising directly on a fast timer site where the surfers attention will mostly be missing your offer. There are quite a few of these sites around and maybe this method is something you can experiment with to see what you think is best.
The Co-op I use with my Eaglehitz traffic is called the Cooperative Marketing Group, or CoopMG.
I have had a pretty good run of getting referrals that came only from the links advertised on this Co-op. It has been going through somewhat of an upgrade faze recently and It looks tlike they are still tweaking a few things here and there. When you log in, you will see on the main page something like this – http://coopmg.com/coop.php?rid=YOURIDNUMBER – where YOURIDNUMBER will be your unique CMG ID number. This is your Co-op link. On the menu at the top on the left of that page, you will see it says ‘Co-ops’ – under that submenu you will find a list of ‘approved sources’ – TE sites that you can advertise your CMG co-op link on to get credits.
So that is pretty much it. I can surf for less than 20 minutes and get around 300 credits and then send them to my CMG link which then gives me around 150 credits with them to advertise my offer link and a much better chance of getting results in the end.
If you have read my other post I mentioned earlier, you will see some of those sites or ‘basic sites’ as I refer to them on that post, can also be used to send traffic to your CMG Co-op link too – such as Space surf, to name one.
I usually surf at least once or twice a week on EagleHitz. I have come to find that it is a pretty handy site to belong to, that can be relied on to always deliver you a sizeable chunk of credits without too much effort. You dont have to spend much time on it and that is very appealing for me. To set up a small ‘3 step system’ like this is quick and easy – EagleHitz –> CMG Co-op –> Your Target Offer.
Give it a try and see if you like it. There’s also a 500 credits sign up bonus too, when you join!
